The Candy Crush game has become more difficult, competitive and almost impossible to pass certain levels without paying for boosters or gold bars. It is also filled with too many pop-ups, ads and hints that can be annoying and frustrating. Some players have been playing for years and find it hard to complete levels due to game glitches, lack of rewards, and forced ads. Overall, players love the graphics, colorful candies, and sense of order, but hate the cash-grabbing tactics and music changes.Candy Crush Saga - Apps on Google Play

I like the game, but I can't give it a higher rating until there's an option to turn off hints. They're so annoying and distracting. I don't want to be handheld through the game and there are often better moves, but I have ADHD and it's hard to think and concentrate on anything else with the hint flashing at me. It's not even a hint because it IMMEDIATELY tells you what to do next. It doesn't even give you a chance to look for your own move. It really ruins the experience for me. I hate it.
I agree with a lot of other users. This used to be an enjoyable game, one where I would look forward to playing. But now it's become almost impossible to pass any level without gold bars or power-ups! It's also turned very competitive in the way that to win gold bars/power ups, etc, you need to win levels against other players, or you never gain any extras! I've been playing this for years, and I'm over level 10000, but lately, it's put me off playing. I genuinely don't like this game anymore!
It's fun filled. It's one of its kind. Actually a time killer while you keep on enjoying the challenges posed. I love it beyond words. It is good and challenging too. It is very nice and keeps me keen on the execution of my next move always. Candy crush saga has a lot more than meets the eye. It's is well crafted to keep one extremely occupied on active always.
I've been playing for YEARS!! I'm on level #5,793!! Customer Service is a joke. They want me to send screen shots to prove my game play issues of rewards not being issued. I thought they would have a way to show i had actually completed levels with time and dates, no, "send screen shots"🤦♀️. I didnt know that we're supposed to screen record our game play. BTW, in 10++ years of playing, I may have requested help on 4 occasions, when changing phones😠 --I hate being a CC addict🤬
Some of the levels are so difficult they just give you 16 moves but the objectives are 100. It so IMPOSSIBLE to beat it unless you purchase the deals. I think they design it for you to purchase the deals they offers.so frustrating. Can't passed the difficult level without spending a money.
This game used to be amazing... now it feels more like a cash grab than a relaxing game there are countless "hard" and "nightmarishly hard" levels back to back which are almost impossible to complete without spending money, unless you occasionally get lucky and there are always pop ups after you lose a level and leave it about buying this booster pack or "topping up" trying to encourage you to spend money in order to win, not what candy crush used to be.
I love the game. It has great game play, and the candy looks good enough to make me want to eat it! The reason I put 4 stars instead of five, was that the nightmare difficulty is almost impossible. I'm stuck on level 46, and have tried countless times, unsuccessful. If the levels are updated to be easier, I think it will be more enjoyable.
Fun game but once you get a ways into the game, there is absolutely zero way to win unless you spend money. Many of the "super hard" or "nightmarishly hard" levels simply cannot be won without boosters or gold bars. Once I realized this, the game got uninstalled. If you want a time waster that costs you a few bucks a week, it's a decent game. But it's not a challenge. It's "Who will spend the most money?"
Terrible, ads more and more as you progress. Worse still is the algorithm determines your progress, sometimes you cannot win a level until it gives you a good drop sequence. I'm sure purchasing anything improves it...speaking of which, you are constantly bombarded with micro transaction prompts. Some ads I understand but wow, just all over the place. Also funny how the algorithm changes after some ads watched sometimes...
I love this game, and have been playing it since 2013, but I absolutely HATE the new music. It's so annoying and bad. Does not match the tone they had set up for 10 years. It's very upsetting, the old music and sound effects were the biggest charm of Candy Crush for me. But it's completely lost now. Candy crushers had been listening to them for years now, and was a way to relax, but the developers just put it all to trash!
I have lost long streaks because my phone rang while I was playing. Also, I lost a "Champions Race" I wasn't a part of. I had just won a race and according to the rules, I had to pass the first round in the new level to start a new race. I quit playing and returned a few days later to find that a 43 rounds long Champions Race streak was gone! I was going for 100 so imagine my disappointment. Fix these or the game isn't worth it. Some of us play for legacies
I love this game very much. I love the colourful candies. Recently, the developer of the application changed the music and added new candies. Although, the new music is also good but the previous one was actually suitable for the game and it was perfect for this game. We wish if we get the options to switch the music to the previous one. We miss that music alot and hope one day we get it back again. What I don't like about this game is the presence of horse and cartoons with dark complexion.
Sometimes enjoyable, more often annoying. I actually spent some money on this when i first started playing but absolutely refuse to do so now. The fish ruin your set-ups and don't go for vital objects. And it's far too easy to accidentally use gold bars. It takes 3 or 4 confirmations to quit the game but touch the 'use gold bars' button and bam! Instant purchase.
Been playing this game for years and it seems it's mandatory to watch ads to finish certain levels and when there's no ads, it's like they want you to purchase boosters or else you cannot finish a level. I've been stuck on a level for a week now and it's impossible to finish because the latest update took away all the ads. Such a shame because the game is really fun but I don't pay to win.
I have been playing for a while and I wish some of the levels were made easier, especially the nightmare difficulty. It seems they are made impossible unless you spend money on boosters or extra moves. I don't feel that is right especially when its one after another back to back, and I did pay to pass the previous level.... Getting to the point when I will just delete the game and forget about it...
It's a fun,relaxing game that speaks to my sense of order and need to organize. The drawbacks are that after a certain level the game becomes competitive, even if it's just against yourself! Most of the levels require boosters to beat which you can win free but the temptation is there to buy. If you don't want to spend real money on a game then resign yourself to win the levels without boosters. Over all addictive and entertaining. If you find level too hard w/o $$...just start over!
Keeps my attention and helps me focus and have fun. It's challenging, but not like some games where I'm stuck on one level for days because not enough lives and very aggravating when you get to a few hundred levels and then you get stuck and can't continue til you pass a level. But what if someone can't for some reason pass a level . Then I just give up the game that once was fun. But when it's to difficult after 30 plus tries, would be great to have a free pass somehow.. B 4 in other games.
The "upgrade" is that they added more dumbass ads. When you finish a round you can get the option of watching an ad to get three more moves or using your gold bars to purchase more moves. When I fail at a level it automatically incorporated the "watch ads" instead of just continuing. This game is addicting, but the stupid ads take all of the fun out of it. I am uninstalling because of the ads. Which doesn't benefit the players enough to have to endure the mind numbing repetition of them. -0 rate
I love this game... I have for years, but I hate when the option to watch a video for extra moves disappears... I don't know why it does that. It will appear for a long time, then just disappear for weeks... this makes it ridiculously hard to beat the levels without having to buy gold in order to continue playing. I'm debating on taking a break from it for a while.
Really fun game, until you get to the higher levels. Like I'm on level 510 and I'm about ready to quit playing it. Because they make the levels so hard & don't give you enough moves so you're forced to keep playing the same level over & over which isn't fun, unless you want to pay 2 dollars, which is ridiculously expensive to pay 2 dollars on each level. And they purposely make the levels so hard that you can't get past them without purchasing gold bars or power ups. Not worth the trouble and $
It's fun and frustrating especially when you get stuck on one level for a long time. And I also have an issue where when am playing the game,then my time's up,and then I want to watch an ad to get some extra time but the moment I finish watching the ad, everything just clashes . Overall it's a nice game. I love it ,been playing for a year now
The game is pretty good, although the latest update is a massive head scratcher. Why did you change the texture of the green candies?? It's so distracting and looks so out of place. It's hard for it to blend with other candy colours cause it sticks out like a sore thumb. I hope this texture change is temporary. I miss the old map for the levels too, the new one is admitted aesthetic, but maybe of we zoom out more, it would be as beneficial as the old map?
It's a great fun but sometimes it can be so frustrating and annoying especially when get stuck on the same level for the last 3 weeks. Keep updating this app but it feels like it's getting worse with every update. Would not recommend to waste your time, health and life on it to be honest. Also nothing really special about this app, all the same levels loop around. Thanks for your entertainment.
I like a variety of options to utilize to continue to move forward in the game and this game doesn't disappoint in that area!! I'm back a 2nd time because it's a game that is more enjoyable the further you get into the levels. It's easier to progress once you have played it before but the design is complex enough to still present a challenge and fun!!!
Used to play this year's ago, decided to pick it back up. It used to be a casual for fun game, pay if you want to. Now you basically can't advance if you don't pay. They removed a bunch of turns on every level so it's basically impossible to win a level after maybe level 200. It's super not cool, I've been trying for weeks, and before in the time I'd advance 500 levels, I beat maybe 10, super stressful, not relaxing. I'm going to toon blast. This games ruined.
Often when I get a color bomb, something like a booster candy comes up and automatically activates it before I get a chance to use it. My girlfriend has the beanstalk which I haven't had in months. I uninstalled and reinstalled and still nothing. They also took away the part where after so many points, levels you get boosters and at the end you would get something extra, no more of that. Way too many hard levels, one after another. Not fun anymore, will be uninstalling permanently.
Fun game, gets you sucked in with easy levels, lots of extras. Then, the levels get really hard, and it takes multiple lives just to beat them. And it wouldn't be a big deal, but there seems to be more hard levels than fun ones. And sometimes it takes a day or two to beat them. Not interested in that. I am uninstalling.
Its a great game and enjoy every each level. At times too many adds. Fun and nice. The grafic design and cartoon character are nice. I love the game even at times is difficult to play. It cheers my day when stressful. It a good game for brain. Need to work out the game when the level is hard. After playing a year they have improved and different stages. Fun and has improved... love it
There are so many pop ups I have to click "x" like 10 times before I can even play a level. It also gets to a point where the game is unplayable unless you pay to complete levels or watch an endless amount of ads, only it seems watching ads for extra moves or boosters isn't even available anymore/on certain levels, and so you end up getting stuck on the same level for days on end. Gets so irritating playing the same level 20 times and then only winning by luck. Bored. Uninstalled.
It's cool for the first six hundred or so levels, but then you start getting 5 or 6 hard levels in a row to purposely eat up boosters and get you to spend money (65 moves for $1.99? Really? 65?). I've spent the last two weeks, every night, spending ten or so lives a night trying to pass one level. This game needs an endless mode where you can just match. No stupidly unobtainable "objectives" and no attempts at cash grabbing. Until that happens, I'll just play bejeweled.

Players have mixed feelings about the Fashion Battle game. While some find it fun, exciting, and addictive, others are annoyed by the excessive number of ads, glitches, and biased judging. Many players also criticize the limited clothing selection and repetitive themes. Some players paid to remove the ads but still encountered them. Overall, the game has potential, but it needs to address its issues and add more variety to keep players engaged.
